There are no charges. He is wanted for questioning.  Someting that can 
be handled by Swedish authorities on English or Ecuadorian soil.

Considering you haven't worked there how the fuck would you know? I'm of 
the opinion Assange's long term incarceration anywhere would be the 
death knell of Wikileaks.

> I could care less about his ethical behavior per se...

And yet your opinion of his behaviour, based solely on allegations, not 
charges, is paramount to your argument.

How long you going to stick around, troll?
